Returning to Platinum Palladium Prints

P1060658P1060658 The reason for my big cameras was to print with noble metals on handmade papers. I worked like this for a brief time a few years ago but was not satisfied with the results. So last month, I jumped at the chance to renew my interest in this process by taking a course with Clay Harmon at the Asheville Bookworks. It was a fabulous few days, lots of printing and sharing of information.

But also a steep learning curve because the new factor for me was the creation and use of digital negatives for contact printing! This opens a whole new set of possibilities yet to be explored.

This week, we hung a new show at the BMFA gallery in Collingwood. The theme of "New Horizons" prompted me  to include 2 or 3 of my palladium prints on Kozo and watercolour papers. I have framed them to show the brush marks which makes them very different from my silver prints. I am eager to once again begin working with this process and will keep you posted!
